INTRODUCTION

Welcome! This guide contains in-depth information about all of the treasure items found within both the main game of Resident Evil 4, as well as the unlockable game, Separate Ways. It is written under the assumption that you know how to play the game and manage your inventory, so please don't expect me to tell you to "shoot the birdnest" to collect a particular treasure, how to combine treasure items in your inventory, or other basic actions of that nature.

Anything and everything that you pick up which is filed in the "Treasures" category of Leon's inventory can be sold at any time to any merchant. None of the treasures are required for story progression at any point, so don't worry about accidentally selling something that you think you may need for a puzzle ("Key Items" are used to solve puzzles and those cannot be sold).

The easiest way to find all the various treasures is to buy each of the treasure maps from the merchant, as they become available (chapters 1-2, 3-1 and 5-1 are the earliest opportunities to buy the map for each of the three areas). Treasure locations are identified on the map with a star symbol. Once you obtain it, it will be replaced with an "X". The only treasure items not marked on the map are the spinels, velvet blues, emeralds, rubies and the green/red/blue eyes. Sometimes you may be standing at or near the "star" location, but you can't seem to find the treasure. In cases like this, you most likely need to check an area below or above where you're at (perhaps there's a hidden room underneath your location) or some things may be stuck high up on a cliff wall or tunnel ceiling. It pays to be observant and check your surroundings carefully to ensure you don't miss anything. However, thanks to my obsessive-compulsive nature, I've also included sections in this guide listing where every one of the spinels, velvet blues, and emeralds can be found! The "eyes" are not listed due to the fact that they are randomly dropped by the novistadors throughout the game. Fear not though, because you can get a mix of eyes in 4-1 if you shoot down the large novistador hive hanging from the ceiling!

Please be advised that if you're playing Resident Evil 4 for the first time and using this guide while doing so, some descriptions of treasure locations will contain occasional spoilers. Since most areas don't have a proper name, certain plot elements needed to be used when identifying a particular area or location.

This guide was researched using the U.S Gamecube and PS2 versions and can be used for Resident Evil 4 on all four platforms (Gamecube, PC, Playstation 2, Wii). I have made an effort to be sure that any possible differences amongst the various platforms are identified, but if you should discover an error (regarding the PC or Wii specifically), feel free to contact me, following the guidelines in the Contact Info section at the end of the guide.

So, without further delay, let's go treasure hunting!

Things such as spinels, velvet blue's, etc. which there are multiples of, are listed in a group total per chapter. Please see the appropriate sections of the guide for specific locations.

Q1. Is it okay to sell all the treasures?

A1. Yes. The sole purpose of treasures is to sell them so that you have more money to buy/upgrade weapons and other items that the merchant sells.

Q2. Are you sure?

A2. Yes! Sell! Sell! Sell!

Q3. But what if you're wrong and I need one of them to solve a puzzle?

A3. I'm not wrong. Treasures are not used for puzzle solutions, key items are. Since key items cannot be sold, there's no need to worry.

Q4. What if I forgot to pick up a treasure? Can I go back for it?

A4. You have a limited opportunity in which you may be able to backtrack and get it, but in most cases, once you leave the area, your chances of being able to go back for something are gone. This is why it pays to thoroughly check every area for all items (not just treasure, but ammo and money, too). If you're worried about missing something, print the chapter checklist section and check off each treasure as you find it.

Q5. You said treasure X is in spot Y, but I can't find it! Why?

A5. You're probably looking in the wrong spot. Some locations are difficult to describe, so I did my best. Used in conjunction with the treasure maps that the merchant sells, this guide should prove quite helpful locating each and every treasure.

  • see Q13 for more help.

Q6. But spinels and velvet blues and emeralds aren't on the map! I don't know where the hell you're talking about! Aarrgghh!

A6. Again, I did my best, but if you can come up with a more accurate (and concise) description of the location, email me. If I like it, I'll use it in the next update and give you credit for it. If I don't use it, please don't be mad. Go write your own treasure guide if you don't like mine.

  • see Q13 for more help.

Q7. How do I combine treasure items?

A7. Highlight a treasure in your inventory and choose the "combine" option. If nothing happens, then you're combining the wrong items. Check the alphabetical listing in this guide to make sure you're using the correct items.

Q8. I found a treasure not listed in your guide. How could you miss it? Are you stupid or something?

A8. Uh, no, I'm not stupid. I played the U.S. Gamecube and Playstation 2 versions to gather my info. It's possible the PC or Wii versions changed or added something that I was unaware of. It's also possible that I missed something in the GC or PS2 versions. If you find something I missed, email me with specific information about what and where the item is. Once I confirm the information, I'll add it and give you credit whenever I next update the guide.

Q9. Wait a minute! I'm playing the Gamecube version but some of the treasure locations are wrong, spinels in particular. What's the deal?

A9. You must be playing the PAL GC version. The NTSC PS2 version (which is what I played) is ported from the PAL GC version, so be sure to follow the PS2 treasure listings, not the GC.

Q10. Uh, how come I can't access certain areas in the game to get treasure X?

A10. You must be playing on "easy" mode. In the PAL versions of RE4, easy mode is available in addition to normal and professional. In order to make the game easier for said difficulty, certain places are off limits, which unfortunately means certain treasures will also be off limits.

Q11. Do I get anything extra at the end of the game for collecting every treasure?

A11. Just the satisfaction of having done so.

Q12. Is there any penalty at the end of the game if I didn't get all the treasures?

A12. Nope, it just means you had less stuff to sell to make money for weapons and upgrades.

Q13. Even with the help of the guide and the in-game treasure maps, I still am not completely sure where treasure X and spinel Y is. Help?

A13. Still stuck, eh? No problem. For further assistance, please refer to the awesome maps made by infoman80:
